BOSTON (AP) _ A woman whose close friend was killed in the Boston Marathon bombings has described the panic that ensued after the first explosion.

Danling Zhou testified Monday during the federal death penalty trial of bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Zhou said she thought the loud noise she heard was a sewer explosion. But Zhou said her friend, Lingzi Lu, grabbed her arm and said, ``What happened?'' and ``What should we do?''

Seconds later, the second bomb exploded.

Zhou said she looked in front of her and saw a man whose legs had been blown off. She said when she looked at Lu, she thought she would be OK because she seemed to still have her arms and legs.

She found out later in the hospital that Lu had been killed.
